steeper or cheaper: striped blazers

I'm back with another duo of similarly-styled fashion pieces at different price points.  I don't consider myself a fashion blogger - just a girl who likes to shop- but I can't resist sharing style inspiration, or a great deal.  This time, it's a striped blazer - similar to  the LOFT crinkle jacket featured in today's roundup.  Karen Kane offers a shawl collar style, while an Xhilaration style available at Target features a notched collar.

Keep reading to see a roundup of inspiration for styling a striped blazer!

This look from I Am Style-Ish would be perfect for a creative 
workplace - red, black, and white is such a can't-fail 
combination, but red pants are unexpected.

Elegant, dramatic, AND work-appropriate style from Beth of 
Seersucker + Saddles in a guest post on Lou What Wear.  
The peplum shirt looks great with skinny pants and a striped blazer, 
proving the red, black and white combo flawless yet again.

I love this take on print mixing: a striped blazer
with a polka dot top via Chictopia.  Another look that's
perfect for work, but still fun and quirky.

Wouldn't this be a PERFECT holiday party outfit?

I'm sold on the striped blazer and colored pants look and am adding both items to my thrifting/budget shopping wish list.  For me, the perfect striped blazer would be made of sweatshirt material - I really love being able to get away with wearing casual fabrics to work. 
How would you style a striped blazer?
